Tomb of the Virgin Mary, Jerusalem

4.6
Considered by many Christians to be the final resting place of the mother of Christ, Tomb of the Virgin Mary provides an atmospheric encounter with a 5th-century church. Enter through the 12th-century Crusader facade, winding your way down the staircase to the ancient Byzantine crypt. Containing the ancient empty crypt of the Virgin Mary, it is believed by many to date back to the 1st century CE. Inspect the colorful icons, and don't miss the smoke blackened stone--thought to have been left behind after Mary's ascension to heaven.

  • The tomb of Mother Mary is at pindi point, Muree Pakistan. Not in Jerusalem.Read books on Google 1.Jesus died in Kashmir 2.Jesus in heaven on earth. Jesus is the greatest prophet the world has given us but Christianity has distorted the facts.
  • A wonderful place to visit Where Hazrat Maryam A.S is buried. You need to stay calm and quiet while visiting the place as It is a worship place for Christians.
  • 8.26.17 - It's cool that the tomb went down relatively deep. There was a service going on while we were there, but when you get to the bottom it's a small area to cover so you can see everything within 5-10 minutes.
  • Tomb of the Virgin Free to visit candles on sale for worship Self walk tour
  • Blessed holy place.
